Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Absolutely loved this! Replaced shortening with butter (Earth Balance) and only used 2 tsp baking powder and it turned out perfect! Also used only brown sugar to sweeten strawberries and cake. This cake was gone in a matter of minutes :).

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
I subbed cottage cheese for ricotta and unstrained greek yogurt for sour cream and you wouldn't miss the extra calories - same great taste with less guilt! Also, you can leave the cheese on top of enchiladas off because there is already enough goo and flavor without it! I added mushrooms and garlic (just because I had them on hand) and saut├ęd them with the spinach and onions - delicious extra touch! A good option when you are craving mexican food but don't want a heavy belly! I served with spanish rice and jalapeno and black beans. YUM!

Crispy Barbequed Tofu Slices

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I haven't ever managed to make tofu not look like scrambled eggs before now! Baking the tofu rectangles at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes before you dip them in the egg mixture most definitely helped the tofu have a crispier texture. Served the barbequed slices in a tortilla with fresh red bell pepper and mixed greens and a little bit of sharp cheddar. Everyone enjoyed even the meat eaters!

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
very nutritious and satisfying! I used half the sugar as most have suggested and added another clove of garlic. This recipe will take care of an entire bag of kale on your hands! If you add some sort of bean and serve over rice it can easily become a main dish. Thanks for sharing!

Fried Dandelions (Appalachian Style)

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Delicious! Cheap and easy, and everyone will be amused with your resourcefulness! Feel free to add any spice you desire to the flour and salt/pepper mixture. I add cinnamon and sweet basil in place of salt and pepper and serve with hot fudge syrup or syrup of choice!!

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
This soup will be in my rotation of favorite recipes. It's very simple and tastes fabulous. A few alterations are necessary to make this five stars, however. Like many have mentioned, adding black beans for some protein is delicious and nutritious. I preferred using a fresh red onion and fresh red and yellow bell pepper for a nice splash of color opposed to frozen stir fry package. Reduce the amount of cumin (only 2 tablespoons at the most) and one or 2 more cloves of garlic. When you add the cheese and avocado it is a nice burst of flavor to add some fresh, chopped cilantro as well as fresh squeezed lime juice. A very flavorful and filling dish, everyone enjoyed thoroughly!

Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I made these for a cookie exchange and they were by far the most popular. Everyone wanted the recipe! Followed recipe exactly except for 2 small changes. used 3 tablespoons of butter instead of 2 only because my chocolate wasn't metling very evenly. Also after adding the chocolate chips let the dough chill for 45 minutes to an hour. The more solid the dough is the easier to ball up the dough so the cookies have a nice shape. Gooey inside and delicious with sea salt! Wonderful recipe

Elegant Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
Very hearty and delicious! I added mushrooms, broccoli, and 3 cloves of garlic to the onions and carrots. I also used vegetable broth (6 cups) instead of chicken broth and no ham to make this vegetarian. 1 1/2 cups of wild rice to make up for the missing meat. Slivered almonds were amazing in this recipe, they go perfect with the nutty taste of the wild rice so I went a little heavier on those. After stirring in the whipping cream I served up the bowls and added a swirl of honey in the center of each bowl. A fun final touch. Served with beer bread and salad. Thanks for the recipe! My roommates devoured it.

Greek Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Feta

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
I loved this salad! I would have given it 5 stars except for I tweaked a few things to my taste. Eggplant was hard to find fresh for me so instead I used zucchini. I also added mushrooms to the roasted veggies, and decided I'd like to roast the garlic with it. I used a tri-color bowtie pasta and used only half of the 12 oz. bag and lots of spinach so the ratio was evened up. After mixing the pasta, spinach, and roasted veggies together I added fresh tomatoes (in place of the sundried) and fresh black olives too. 1/4 cup of balsamic and only 2 tablespoons of olive oil. 6 tablespoons seemed a little too oily for me. Topped with tomato basil feta. Delish! And so colorful! Roomies liked it too!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This was a good recipe and fairly simple. I used a rotisserie chicken since I was short on time. Also added corn and peas along with the onions and cooked them in a skillet with the garlic and a little olive oil. Everyone enjoyed, thumbs up.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This is so easy I couldn't believe it! I took it to a family gathering and it was the first dessert gone! I used 1 cup brown sugar and only 1/2 cup white sugar as well as only 3/4 cup of butter... and I put a little of the sugar/butter mixture inside of the dumpling with the apple. YUM! This was a HIT, yay!
